COMMUNITY SERVICE BLOCK GRANT

What is COMMUNITY SERVICE BLOCK GRANT?

The goal of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is to combat poverty; the revitalization of low-income communities and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals to become fully self-sufficient.  The Community Services Block Grant is designed to help low-income individuals and families: secure and retain meaningful employment; attain an adequate education; improve the use of available income; obtain adequate housing; obtain emergency assistance; including health and nutrition services; remove obstacles which block the achievement of self-sufficiency; and achieve greater participation in the affairs of the community.  

 

Participants in this project receive activities and services that will lead them to self sufficiency through increased income as a result of obtaining training and employment. 

 

Program components include but are not limited to:

  • Comprehensive Case Management
  • Work Readiness Training
  • Support Services or Emergency Services
  • School Age Tutorial

 

To be eligible for the assistance, a family must meet the income requirements per the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
